In this course you’ll learn how to install and configure a production-grade Kubernetes cluster, from network configuration to upgrades to making deployments available via services. Also handle the ongoing tasks necessary for Kubernetes administration.

  • This course does not focus on one vendor’s tools. Most courses are vendor-locked. We use kubeadm to deploy the cluster and focus on tools that would work on anyone’s Kubernetes cluster.

Skills Gained

Topics Include:

  • Installation of a multi-node Kubernetes cluster using kubeadm, and how to grow a cluster.
  • Choosing and implementing cluster networking.
  • Various methods of application lifecycle management, including scaling, updates and roll-backs.
  • Configuring security both for the cluster as well as containers.
  • Managing storage available to containers.
  • Learn monitoring, logging and troubleshooting of containers and the cluster.
  • Configure scheduling and affinity of container deployments.
  • Use Helm and Charts to automate application deployment.
  • Understand Federation for fault-tolerance and higher availability.

Prerequisites

Students should have an understanding of Linux administration skills, comfortable using the command line. Must be able to edit files using a command-line text editor. A knowledge of Cloud Native application concepts and architectures (such as is taught in our free Introduction to Kubernetes edX MOOC) is helpful for this course.

I liked our instructor Michael Stapleton, thought he was warm and genuine in his demeanor, lending humor at times making students feel comfortable and especially making the course more enjoyable. He was very patient with the students, taking time to answer all question and to help troubleshoot issues. I would definitely attend another course if he was teaching !!
